Vegan Policy

BOS Australia Vegan Policy

BOS Australia promotes a vegan lifestyle
As an orangutan conservation organisation, we are deeply committed to protecting orangutans and working towards saving them from the brink of extinction. However, our dedication extends beyond the well-being of our red cousins. We consider ourselves as advocates for all animals and strive for a world where they do not have to suffer. Therefore, we promote a vegan lifestyle that does not harm animals or contribute to deforestation, climate change and the pollution of rivers and oceans.

  1. Definition of ‘veganism’

“Veganism is a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude—as far as is possible and practicable—all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of animals, humans and the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals.”

  1. What BOS Australia stands for: 
  • Dedicated to promoting the benefits of veganism and its values.
  • Supporting a more compassionate world in animal welfare, and working toward an environmentally sustainable world.
  • Believe in respecting animal rights and will not accept or support any acts of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for entertainment, food, clothing, or any other purpose that is unethical.

How Can You Help

There are lots of ways you can support orangutans and help ensure the survival of this precious ape.

Adopt an Orangutan

Adopt an Orangutan

Orangutans are endangered and at risk of extinction. Habitat destruction results in hundreds of orphaned orangutans, who rely on our care every year. You can help by adopting one. Their dedicated ‘nannies’ teach them everything they need to know for when it’s time to release them back to the wild. You can follow their progress through Forest School.
